Additional info from DJ Diablo:
DJ Undercover was a DJ that used to send Tim Westwood his mix tapes. Tim Westwood used to play his mixes on LWR.

DJ Jeeves did the drum program on the Pumpkin Mix and it was played by Tim Westwood on LWR (listen at 6mins).

The DJ Elite mix is a mix I downloaded and not from my tapes. There was no/very little swearing on the radio stations in the early-to-mid 1980s.

DJ Roger Johnson was a DJ for Dave Pearce on Radio London.
